A Case of Associated with Autosomal Reciprocal Translocation


Infertility, defined as 1 year of unprotected coitus without conception, affects approximately 10 to 15% for couples of reproductive age. Approximately 35% of these cases are attributable to male factor infertility. A major cause of male infertility is chromosome abnormality, such as 47 chromosomes with an XXY karyotype. Early surveys of infertile males showed that the incidence of major chromosome abnormality in infertile males in azoospermic patients. When patients are treated for male infertility, a chromosome analysis including a search for abnormality at the DNA level, should be performed. We have experienced a case of autosomal reciprocal translocation in azoospermic patient. So we report this case with a brief review of literatures.
